History

Danebu Kongsgaard was originally a national gift from Norway to Denmark to thank them for their help after the second world war. The initiator was Aftenposten's then editor P. Chr. Andersen put forward the idea of a fundraiser for this purpose right after World War II. The ski association took the idea further by its chairman Lauritz Schmidt's initiative and started a nationwide fundraising campaign on Denmark's Constitution Day. This was a fantastic success with thousands of small and large contributions. As early as August 1945, the Norwegian Ski Association was able to hand over the gift certificate on the so-called Danish Cottage to the Danish Sports Association.

It was architect H. Astrup who, together with Colonel Bloch-Hansen, found a stunning site at the top of Aurdalsåsen in Valdres. After an architectural competition won by Esben Poulsson, Danebu was built over the years of 1947 to 1950. Danebu Kongsgaard opened its doors on December 16th 1950.
